I guess you are wondering what could possibly be so interesting about the CommentLuv plug-in?
If you had a business in your local town and sat there and waited for customers to come and see you, in desperate times would you go out and get them? This is the beauty of blogging and the beauty of using the CommentLuv plug-in. Have you ever seen Gordon Ramsay, that famous chef who goes out on the street and drums at business for a failing restaurant? The CommentLuv plug-in reminds me of Gordon Ramsay. It goes out, chats to people, and convinces visitors to come to your business and give it a go. But you better have good food when they get there. If they see that you have something unique and decent to offer, you might gain a valuable customer.
What does the WordPress CommentLuv plug-in do?
When you comment on a CommentLuv enabled website you can leave a link to your latest post on your blog. Not only can this gets you more traffic, but it has proven to give you link juice which is great for search engine purposes.
Enhancing the WordPress CommentLuv plug-in?
If you have more than one website it is worth purchasing the option to add other websites to this plug-ins functionality. Therefore when you comment, depending on the niche, you can choose a latest post from that particular website. For example if I was commenting on a post about computers I would enter the e-mail that I registered that coincides with my computer tips website. This means that a computer related post will show as my CommentLuv post.
What can you do when you want to leave links to older posts?
If you register at the CommentLuv website it allows you to choose from your latest 10 posts. The one you choose will be left as a link under your comment that you make. Sometimes I wish that one of my older posts was in that latest 10 list. To solve this problem I go to my blog and I change the date that the blog post was published. For example if I had posted an article 2 years ago, I could go in and change the posts date to a more recent time, and press update. This is just the same as recycling your posts, and they are still published with the same URL. The only difference is that when you go back to choose a post from your 10 latest posts, that article will appear. This is useful for when you find an article to comment on that do not have a recent post to suit that niche.
This is basically making the list of the 10 latest posts made to order.
How do you find Comment Luv enabled websites to comment on?
The best place to find CommentLuv enabled websites is to goes directly to the CommentLuv website where they have 40,000+ registered users. Here they are all on a platter for you. The CommentLuv website even has a search engine and the results show CommentLuv enabled blogs.
Another way is to read the comments on the commentLuv blog and visit websites that are related to your niche. Once you start doing this you will find more people commenting on more website and your investigation can go further and further.
Using commentLuv to gain website traffic
I like to choose blogs that look like they are relatively busy, or at least have a decent following. This way if the blog doesn’t prove to give you good link juice, it possibly could give you good traffic. CommentLuv leaves the entire title of your last post to tempt a potential website visitor to click on. I like to choose a related blog post to the one I am commenting on.
Finding do follow comment Luv enabled sites
Finding CommentLuv enabled websites does not guarantee that they are dofollow links so I use a Firefox plug-in called quirk search status. You simply go to the website and download it and in the options menu you can choose to show all know follow links. http://www.quirk.biz/searchstatus/
Here is a recent article that shows more details: How to find comment Luv blogs with high page rank?
Installing WordPress Commentluv plug-in on your own website
I am so thankful to Andy Bailey for developing this plug-in and it is a must have for every website you have. This plug-in has proven to encourage commenting on my websites and this is really what we all want. Conversations are encourage and cannot be avoided, benefits are clearly given to your readers, and we are all sharing a love.
Commenting with the WordPress CommentLuv plug-in on your own website
If you have CommentLuv installed on your own website you need to use it to your advantage. I realized that I was missing out on its great features by replying to comments within my WordPress dashboard. I finally woke up to the fact that if you approved the comments first, then went to the actual post and replied, this gave you a chance to use the CommentLuv plug-in yourself.
So let’s think about this? Why would I want to use the WordPress CommentLuv plug-in when I am commenting or replying on my own website? Well the simple reason is that I was trying to decrease my bounce rate. This is the percentage of people that leave after they have read a post. I wanted them to go on to read something else so therefore I went to my posts, commented, leaving the bait hoping that they would be interested and read another post.
Everyone else is leaving a link to their posts so why shouldn’t I?
Commenting more than once on a blog post?
If you have done the right thing and registered at the Comment Luv website, you will have a choice of your 10 latest posts to leave a link from. Therefore if you feel the need to comment more than once on one blog post you should use the option of leaving different links. Who knows what will attract one person and not attract another? You might be thinking that leaving a link about blogging on a post about blogging is the right thing to do, however what if that person was really interested in something else. It least you could give them a few choices.
There is no guarantee that leaving a related link will encourage the visitor to click and therefore it is in your best interest to show some variety when leaving a comment Luv link.
Use comment Luv to promote your guest posts
Did you know that you can use this WordPress commentluv plug-in with anyone’s website but the only downside is that you can only show their latest post and not get the choice of the 10 latest posts. So all you have to do is find a related article where you can comment using commentluv plug-in and add in the URL of the website that you did your guess post on. Therefore if you do have guest posts on someone’s website and it is the latest post published, then you have the opportunity to make a few comments and promote it. This only applies if you are the latest post so you have to be quick!
Give it a go, even though this is a sneaky little trick, it is very effective.
Let’s not forget to leave a decent comment
Installing this plug-in has not encouraged spam, but has encouraged in in-depth, interesting comments. People do not want to waste their time and desperately want their links to be approved on your website. I know most Webmasters are happy to approve comments that talk about the subject at hand and add value to the post.
